Second Movement V

Albers, Anni (American, 1899-1994)


Anni Albers was the wife of abstract artist Josef Albers and was the last surviving teacher of the famed Bauhaus School in Germany in the 1920s. Renowned as a textile designer, her prints, which she did not begin making until the age of 64, depict the same abstract, geometric patterning that made her weaving so influential.

Anni and Josef Albers began making prints with Ken Tyler at Tamarind in 1963. They again collaborated at Gemini G.E.L. and again at Tyler Graphics Ltd. beginning in 1976, the year of Josef Albers' death.
